Cavs Coverage: Beacon kicking PD's Ass


When it comes to Cavs coverage, the Beacon Journal is the place to go
I realize the battle between our region's Incredibly Shrinking Dailies — The Plain Dealer and Beacon-Journal -- is becoming more and more like a celebrity death match between Nicole Richie and Calista Flockhart. But it's worth noting (again) that Brian Windhorst, the ABJ's Cavaliers beat writer, continues to pummel The PD with smart insider stories and a pretty thorough, consistent blog about the team. (The PD, meanwhile, aggressively pummels readers with gems like this, an actual caption from this morning's paper: "Cleveland rookie Daniel Gibson is excited about starting at point guard for the Cavaliers." Well. No. Shit.) Today, on the blog and in the paper, Windhorst addresses recent rumblings by LeBron about the team needing to play a more up-tempo style. He also has had some interesting things about basketball impresario and LeBron adviser Wes Wesley, including a link to this True Hoop post . This story rocks because it centers on one crazy night in Cleveland, and includes appearances by LeBron, Jay-Z, Beyonce, MJ, Carmen Policy, and some random local lawyer named Mike Coyne, whom I wrote about last year. Go forth and enjoy. — Joe P. Tone
